Lockheed Martin has signed a five-year agreement to provide its Enhanced Laser Guided Training Rounds (ELGTRs) to the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA), the company announced on 5 December.

The agency will purchase ELGTRs on behalf of NATO member countries. The follow-on agreement is effective through 2021 and covers the purchase of up to 3,000 ELGTRs per year for the next five years.

ELGTR is a live-fire training solution that emulates the flight characteristics of the Paveway II Laser Guided Bomb and presents pilots with the same information they would see during an actual mission.

Jason Golden, ELGTR program manager at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, said: ‘Lockheed Martin values our partnership with NSPA to provide NATO member countries with realistic live-fire training for employment of Paveway II Laser Guided Bombs.

‘International and domestic air and ground crews benefit from this cost-effective and capable solution to refine operational employment tactics.’
